5 Unconventional Tips for Finding and Following Your Passion

5 Unconventional Tips for Finding and Following Your Passion | Beautiful: beyond practical | Scoop.it

There are a lot of people today that are fresh out of college or university, and they don’t know what to do.

Or maybe someone has lost their job, and they are staring into the dark abyss of the future without a clue as to where to start.

All of this can seem scary, but it’s an opportunity for change.

You are no longer the person you were when you started on your current path, and if you want to be fulfilled, you have to be willing to leap into the unknown and find what makes you come alive.

It’s Time for Design to Start Empathy Too

It’s Time for Design to Start Empathy Too | Beautiful: beyond practical | Scoop.it

Empathy is a really big word in design, specifically in the practice of “Design Thinking.” However, this article examines a different role for empathy in design, one that is very frequently overlooked.

 

In Design Thinking, empathy is what kicks off a project – it is the first step in understanding what the end user might need by being able to get hands-on experience understanding their problems and “pain points.” The space in which empathy is quite absent from design, however, is in communication materials, a medium that is historically sympathetic. Sympathy, as opposed to empathy, does not foster a deep understanding or emotional connection. Empathy, as opposed to sympathy, is a way for us to develop our understanding by sharing an experience.

How empathy is leading the way in creative fields

 

The new RSA animate video, The Power of Outrospection is quite thought provoking and has gotten me  thinking about all kinds of links between empathy and creativity.

In the video, philosopher Roman Krznaric explores the idea that we live in a time that demands more empathic adventurers in all aspects of life.  Empathy not just so we act better towards others, but also because it helps us create better innovations, services and quality of life.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 27, 2012 11:57 AM

Business can be complex. Leadership can be complex. Certainly our culture and society is complex.


This article gets us thinking -- and includes some fabulous advice -- about how storytelling can help us wade through complex issues, make better decisions, and find a path forward.


Today. Right now. As 2013 approaches, let's continue to use stories well, to help grow and excel, instead of to diminish others.


There are wise and uplifting words in this piece and steps to take. Let's go this route. Happy New Year everyone.
